My car states 'cobalt red', what is the difference between crimson red and cobalt red? Probably a few shades, lol.

Thanks for the reply on the colors. However, right on the label itself on the rear bumper, it reads "COBALT RED". Factory label. It's been challenging for myself too.

Not to be a smart ass but there was no such thing as cobalt red in any of the years. My friend has all of the brochures from 05-09. 2005 there was only Sport Red Medallic, 06-07 there was only Crimson Red, 08-09 Performance Red Metallic, 2010 I would assume would be the same as 08-09.

Not to be a smartass, but here is a list of all the paint codes/options for the G6 & a picture of a G6 in Cobalt Red.. I only really posted this because you basically called the new member a liar, stating that he couldn't have Cobalt Red paint from the factory on his G6.. Here's his defence:

GM part # 1#12346791 CODE 27 WA 946L = WA 946L = Cobalt Red, yes?

The paint code is in the glovebox on ALL G6s, right? So, to the original poster.. To verify - just check your paint code.

Thank you kindly for supplying the information in my defense. Much appreciated. Plus, it also helped me from going nuts trying to figure out if my paint code in my glove box was really what it said to be, just as you listed.

Hell yeah! I'm going to that PA car meet @ Grove City Outlets & I'm hitting the Nike store and buying myself a few pairs. You should definitely consider coming, it'll be a good time!

How do you like your G6 so far!? :beer:

Can't make it to the meet as previous plans before purchasing the G6 were made.

So far, I like the car alot. Trying to get used to it a bit with the normal quirks of first getting a car.

Main problem for me is that I need to swap out the driver's seat. Need to get a 6 way power one instead of the 2 way power one. Hard to get real comfortable without the 6 way adjustments. So it is at the top of my list for mods.

I never bothered to really look at the sticker on g6's but I have access to a lot of them so in conclusion if you go by the sticker than you will never really know what pontiac actually called them because about the only sticker that had the right name was white diamond. What the brochures call them and what they put on the stickers are different in most cases. So I still stick by the statement that the color pontiac advertised for your g6 is Crimson Red lol.
